Theater & Performance / City

Theater as an entertaining road trip: two kids take an expert look at the city – with the audience as a mobile truck gallery.

For many people, urban life is the most normal thing in the world: every view has been seen, each turn-off on the way to work has been taken hundreds of times. In the most recent attempt to expand the theater by Berlin’s Rimini Protokoll, who are known around the world for their intensely researched documentary theater works, two Hamburg children surrender themselves to urban order in an unconventional setting: 50 spectators at a time sit in a mobile viewing space on the specially modified loading space of a truck, allowing them to watch the city like a theater stage through a window. The everyday movements of the city and the random interactions of passersby – alternating with staged moments and video projections – are creating a screenplay for a journey through every trick in the city: What is allowed and what isn’t? What is required of me and what freedom do I have? What am I not allowed to even think? What would it be like to live without rules? And what rules do we need in the future? What are the »do’s« and »don’ts« in this city? Compositions by musician Barbara Morgenstern (who is also performing a double-concert on Aug. 22 with Michaela Melián) accompany the children-led urban experiment. A moving theater experience with multilayered insights into a city called Hamburg.
